Re: Submit Applications to CAPIO or SAPIO and save postal expenditure
It may be OK for an applicant sitting in a large govt department in a big city to reach the application to his CAPIO/SAPIO, who in all probabilities may be working in the same office complex. But unfortunately it cannot be applicable in every single case.
For example, how about an RTI applicant from a village. Probably he will be spending more time and money in trying to find out a CAPIO/SAPIO to submit his application, than sending it by regd post, besides being in doubt all the time if his application has reached the correct PIO.
Likewise, in those cases that involve the life and liberty of an individual where a mandatory reply has to be given within 48 hours, would anybody be interested in taking this route and waste five precious days to save on postage?
Under such circumstances, the proverbial sauce for the goose is not sauce for the gander.
